Main browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will possibly be affected. And until you eliminate Search.ambt.co from the system, the website will load every time you open your browser.

Browser hijackers could also set you a different search engine, so do not be shocked if when you look for something through browser address bar, a strange web page will greet you. Do not click on any strange results as they’d lead to advertisement pages. The hijackers will redirect you because they aim to help web page owners earn more money, and with boosted traffic, more advert revenue is earned. After all, increased traffic means there are more users likely to click on ads, meaning more revenue. They sometimes have little to do with what you were looking for, so you gain little from those web pages. In some cases, they might appear legitimate, so for example if you were to inquire about ‘computer’, results leading to dubious sites might come up but you wouldn’t notice initially. Be vigilant because some of those sites might even be harmful. Redirect viruses also tend to keep an eye on peoples’ Internet usage, collecting certain data. Some redirect viruses provide access to the data to unrelated parties, and it is used advertising purposes. If not, the reroute virus would use it to make the sponsored content more personalized.
